Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share book excitement with other bloggers! The U.S./U.K. cover for this book was recently revealed, and it’s from one of my favorite publishers, Angry Robot/Strange Chemistry:
Cracked by Eliza Crewe. Release date: November 5th 2013 (Strange Chemistry). I’m pretty excited that I’ll be helping Eliza promote her debut during her blog tour. In addition to reviewing Cracked, I’ll be interviewing Eliza in early November. She is a lovely person, and I was particularly interested to find out she has pet hens! I’ve invited her to send me a photo of them to include with the interview, which you are not going to want to miss:) Here’s what Cracked is about (via Goodreads):
Meet Meda. She eats people.
Well, technically, she eats their soul. But she totally promises to only go for people who deserve it. She’s special. It’s not her fault she enjoys it. She can’t help being a bad guy. Besides, what else can she do? Her mother was killed and it’s not like there are any other “soul-eaters” around to show her how to be different. That is, until the three men in suits show up.
They can do what she can do. They’re like her. Meda might finally have a chance to figure out what she is. The problem? They kind of want to kill her. Before they get the chance Meda is rescued by crusaders, members of an elite group dedicated to wiping out Meda’s kind. This is her chance! Play along with the “good guys” and she’ll finally figure out what, exactly, her “kind” is.
Be careful what you wish for. Playing capture the flag with her mortal enemies, babysitting a teenage boy with a hero complex, and staying one step ahead of a too-clever girl are bad enough. But the Hunger is gaining on her.
The more she learns, the worse it gets. And when Meda uncovers a shocking secret about her mother, her past, and her destiny… she may finally give into it.
If this sounds awesome to you, too, don’t forget to add it to your Goodreads list! What are you waiting on this week? Link me up!
